The United Way Student Board is a campus based community change organization, led by students, that addresses critical Education, Health, and Income issues in the community. The Student Board brings insight on campaigning, community awareness, and gives students in Hernando County the opportunity to develop leadership skills.
Time and again in history, young people have catalyzed change. This is their opportunity to make a difference!
Despite the uniqueness of each chapter, United Way Student Board Members should know that they are part of an international network of young people working to advance the common good.
The Student Board is an opportunity for high school and college students to engage in something bigger than themselves. It is a chance to think globally while acting locally to better the lives of friends, neighbors, and other members of their community.
